I’ve been really trying to limit my Target trips these days. There were weeks when I would go almost every single day, which is a lot easier than one would think seeing as how the megastore is literally 5 blocks from my office. If I had some sort of infrared layout of the store tracking my route during each visit, there wouldn’t be much deviation. I have a routine. And it always includes stopping by the beef jerky shelf. For whatever reason, and what I dub “the phenomenon,” Target is able to sell their dried meats for less than anyone else. What gives? I don’t get it, and it might be one of those “ignorance is bliss” scenarios.
If I could afford it on the regular, though, I would opt for turkey jerky from Jerky.com. As someone who knows a thing or two about dehydrated animal, I can say the teriyaki variety of said turkey jerky (which is fun to say, no?) is the best I’ve had in a long time. Uber tasty. In fact, It would be selfish of me to not share the spoils. The nice guys at jerky.com sent me a 1/2 pound bag to give away at my discretion. Want it? Leave a comment on why you deserve it (make it clever) and I will choose one winner at random. There is also a runner-up prize.
